"There are lots of predators out there... stalkers who'd just love to have a taste of someone like you..."

Plot Summary

The graveyard shift at a dingy diner in San Francisco -- that's where MC's story begins. It's just another normal night, or at least it seems to be. 

...That is, until a certain mysterious customer stops by, bringing the dangerous attention of a few people with him. When it rains, it pours, and suddenly MC finds himself in the middle of a war he didn't even know existed... between vampires.

How does MC react to the dark, violent world that opens up before him? That's up to you!

Ash has been stuck in San Francisco for most of his life. Even though he dreams of becoming a famous artist (whether in music, digital art, or writing is up to the player!), he currently works the graveyard shift at a run-down little diner. 

He's wry, tough, and determined by default, but his personality changes and grows throughout the course of the game!

Despite his intimidating appearance, Dominic prefers to keep to himself. A man of few words, he rarely offers any insight into his thoughts, but his silence suggests a deep conflict going on beneath the surface.

Isaac reeks of "unscrupulous businessman," and makes no effort to hide it. He seems very out of place among the rough, unrefined types who hang around San Fran's seedy parts, though there's a good reason for the company he keeps.

Wild, impulsive, bloodthirsty, and Dominic's polar opposite, Rex wears his vampiric nature like a badge of pride. It's a wonder he's lived as long as he has, considering his reckless nature and insatiable appetite.

I meant to finish it earlier, but I never got around to it until now. But ahhh, I'm so glad I finally did. The humor never ceased to bring a smile to my face. Honestly, this game was so delightful. I really enjoyed going through the story again and again just to see the changes in the MC's dialogue. My favorite character by far was Luka so I really hope we get to see more of him in the future DLC. Come to think of it, didn't you mention he would be the focus of the DLC in your blog...?

But anyway, regardless I'm so happy the DLC is free. Anyway, enough of my rambling and goodnight~


i really love it! and my favorite is dom! he is really a sweet heart (uh well i admit all the other guy is really a sweet heart.. even tho i hope there's a more bishop route from the start)
i played all the route and the story is never fail me to melting.. and squeeling!

really.. the story.. character.. art.. music.. is all perfect! beautiful!

once again thank you for made this game! it's really worth it!

I was just looking this over and then I saw Isaac and the next thing I know my receipt from PayPal was coming up...

This looks very interesting, I'll come back with a review after I get a chance to play through it! Already love the sprite art and the concept. The backgrounds are lovely too!

So I finally got a chance to play! I've only done Rex's route so far. I played it multiple times, and couldn't manage to unlock the other options at the end. I'm guessing I have to do the other routes in order to do so?

Overall, it was a nice time. Rex is cute, and not quite as rough as his appearance would make you think. The whole thing was shorter than I thought it would be though. The personality changing is a nice addition, though there were sometimes where what the MC would say or think was at odds with some of the choices I'd made. Being rather rude despite having high gentle stats, etc. I liked that you could choose what your hobby was, though it didn't seem to change the story much.

The music was nice and unobtrusive, all the sound effects really added to the atmosphere. 

Congratulations on getting the whole thing together, it's clear a lot of work went into this.

I'll be trying for Isaac next.

edit: BTW, there's a part in the intro where Ash says a girl walks in, and then immediately afterwards calls Luka a 'he', before discovering that fact for himself.

no sex scenes or voice acting? Nuuuuuu T^T

Mmn, I managed to get all endings but...I can't get the 2 secret achievements on steam. o^o

Some kind folks over on Steam have made an achievements guide!

I was given this game as a gift, I was just wondering if it still comes with a steam key even though it was gifted to me?

Hello there! Yes, you should be able to find a "Get Steam Key" button on your Itch.io purchases page (you may have to be logged in).

If you can't find it there, please send us an email at contact@argentgames.co!


I found it! Thank you, the screenshot really helped.

Loving the game so far, but I wonder if there's a walkthrough planned? I'm having a little trouble getting some of the endings.

A couple of people are already making one. They've passed along a single version for getting all the good endings that we'll link to soon!


Awesome!  Thanks for answering

Glad to hear that! I keep getting Ash's bad end. Which is really bad. Like not sure how it could be worse. 


I just finished playing this game and hey, it was pretty good. Rex was definitely my favorite of the three. He was just sooooo ugh. :") What a cutie! You can check out my full thoughts here. :)

For the love of me I can't seem to figure out how to get Rex's good ending, WHAT AM I DOING WRONG asdfkglld

Same! And Rex is such a cutie, too!


After some struggle, reaaally long struggle I finally got it. I think you have to choose ''Stay close'' and ''I'm your friend not a blood bag'', and be blunt and charming/gentle I think.

really? It seems to not work for me;; maybe im just doing it wrong,,
